As epilepsy surgery has grown in popularity, more books are being published on that subject. These books generally take the form of a series of didactic chapters, each addressing a particular topic pertinent to surgery, such as selection of candidates, the role of the electroencephalogram, the role of neuroimaging, and so forth. While brief case studies are often incorporated within chapters, the emphasis is on the abstract principles that govern surgical decisions.
